Over angry objections from two black members, the Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday confirmed attorney Mary Nichols as the new Department of Water and Power commissioner, a move expected to create an environmentalist majority on the influential commission. "It is time we had activists on this board that are not going to treat it as a public monopoly but as a public utility," said Councilwoman Gloria Molina shortly before the council voted 10 to 3 to approve Mayor Tom Bradley's nominee.

A Los Angeles City Council panel on Tuesday endorsed Mayor Tom Bradley's appointment of environmental lawyer Mary Nichols to the Water and Power Commission, but cautioned her against attempting to radically alter the course of the giant city-owned utility. If the full council approves the appointment next Tuesday, Nichols, 45, would become the third environmentalist on the five-member board.

Mike Gage is back in City Hall, although his return has been so quiet you would hardly know it. Gage, you recall, quit as Tom Bradley's deputy mayor and chief of staff a few months ago to become a land development executive. Exhausted from the high pressure of directing Bradley's defense in the investigation of the mayor's outside business activities, he had become a walking temper tantrum, at war with the press and even some of his own staff. But politics is an addiction.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power commissioners on Thursday adopted a water-rationing surcharge plan that would levy higher rates as city residents save more water. Officials said that if residents use less water, the DWP would need the extra money to cover fixed costs. The new rate, described as a "floating surcharge" must be approved by the City Council and could be considered today when the council debates Mayor Tom Bradley's rationing plan.
